According to a lawsuit filed by the Jivovs, in exchange for the $100,000, Bogdanovich, who was to "serve as mentor to Matt and train him for the assistant position and for future movie-making."


This kid deserves his own reality show.

Before Matt Jivov set off on a career in cinema (he has directed a short film set at the end of World War II), he played as a goaltender on an Ontario hockey team owned by his father. The junior league squad's coach and general manager were sacked in 1999 after choosing to start another goalie ahead of the younger Jivov, according to Canadian press reports. The elder Jivov claimed that the firings had nothing to do with his son's demotion to backup netminder.
